In 2014, Victory Motorcycles chose Parker Hannifin’s GVM motors to be featured on their prototype race machines competing in the 2015 Isle of Man TT Zero.

In 2013, Parker participated in the FIM eRoadRacing series. Eric Bostrom and Shane Turpin rode Brammo's Empulse RR and Parker provided even more powerful GVM motors than in prior years. These racing machines represented two of the highest performance electric racing motorcycles on the planet at the time.  They successfully defended their title and were once again crowned North American Champions in the category.

In the 2012 season Brammo won the World Championship using Parker GVM motors.
Racing conditions push electric vehicle products far beyond their normal operating parameters. Within these extreme conditions, much can be learned about how to improve the production version of the electric motors.  Parker has taken important lessons learned from the track and used the date to make vast improvements to the standard product that every customer can leverage.

It's no coincidence that since Brammo started using Parker motors in 2011 they have won the North American Championship every year!  

Best of luck to Victory Motorcycles as they race in the Isle of Man using the “winningest” electric traction motor of all time.
